Collection Times

The collection of keys will be available at the following times:

until further notice. 

Before you collect your keys, please ensure the following:

  • Key collection is limited to one (1) purchaser who must have their photo ID ready to present to the consultant.

  • Your keys cannot be released by our consultant until settlement is confirmed by the Vendor’s (developer’s) Solicitor. Generally, this can take 1 – 2 hours from notification of settlement from your solicitor. We recommend waiting 2 hours after your settlement has been completed until you collect your keys to avoid having to wait in the lobby.

  • If you would like a representative to collect the keys on your behalf, they must bring along a completed Key Collection Authority Form authorising the collection of your keys. The Form can be downloaded from the link below and needs to be completed and signed off by you, the purchaser.

Property Settlement Solutions will not be able to release your keys unless the completed form and Photo ID are presented.

DECEMBER | THE STAR RESIDENCES HOLIDAY EDITION

Welcome to the December, and final, edition of The Star Residences blog for 2021

Construction Update

We finish off the year applauding the tremendous construction progress of The Star Residences. The apartments are therefore on track to complete and settle the development in early 2022. This means, if you haven’t already commenced your finance application, should you be obtaining finance to settle your apartment, you must do so immediately. Delaying this start means you run the risk of not settling on time, and the developer reserves its right to impose penalty interest on late settlements.

(See below for wonderful time lapse videos of the construction progress.)

Bank Valuation Inspections

We will announce the commencement of bank valuation inspections in January so please look out for this all-important email from Property Settlement Solutions. These inspections are for your banks’ valuers only; you will get your opportunity to inspect your apartment shortly thereafter and before settlement.

If you still require finance assistance, please contact:
